Following UK government guidance issued on 4 January 2021, all RCM Junior Department teaching will be online until at least February.
We hope to operate a phased return to musical activity on campus later in the spring term, continuing to offer a blended learning programme with a mixture of digital and on-campus provision. We intend to deliver the safest and highest-quality learning experience for all JD students, gradually expanding in-person provision as soon as it is safe to do so.
We will aim to maximise the amount of on-campus music-making that we can offer whilst keeping all our students and staff safe. The health and wellbeing of our community is our top priority.
RCMJD parents should refer to the Blended Learning Guide sent on 4 September 2020 for further information. Regular updates about our musical activities will be provided in our weekly e-shot, sent via email every Thursday during term-time.
We continue to follow developments in government policy and advice from music industry professionals to ensure that all in-person musical activities are planned with safety in mind.
Please note, in line with government guidelines for schools, no parents or visitors will be allowed on campus unless they have a pre-arranged appointment with the Head or Assistant Head of Junior Programmes or a member of the JD admin team. Currently, parents are not able to attend instrumental lessons.
